Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now shipping the DWM3001C 6.5 GHz and 8.0 GHz ultra-wideband (UWB) module from Qorvo®. The DWM3001C UWB module is designed to accelerate Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications for tags, access control, asset tracking and secure bubble environments. This fully integrated module streamlines UWB implementation in applications such as factory and warehouse automation and security systems and provides high-precision, real-time location for healthcare staff and patient applications, retail security, connected home, navigation and more.
The Qorvo DWM3001C, available at Mouser Electronics, is a fully integrated UWB module and certified (FCC, ETSI and IC) integrated modem solution to simplify UWB implementation in systems using a standard low-power microcontroller. The DWM3001C features adjustable data rates from 850 kbps to 6.8 Mbps, with maximum packet lengths of 1023 bytes for high-data-throughput applications. The module integrates the DW3110 transceiver IC, Nordic Semiconductor nRF52833 Bluetooth® Low Energy system-on-chip (SoC), a planar UWB antenna, accelerometer, power management and crystal — all bundled together to improve design cycle duration.
The Qorvo DWM3001C module’s RF design is fully tested and calibrated to offer low power consumption for battery-powered applications. The DWM3001C UWB is compliant with the IEEE 802.15.4z standard and developed in accordance with the FiRa Consortium PHY and MAC specifications and Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) specifications. The DWM3001C module can be used in two-way ranging (TWR) or time difference of arrival (TDoA) applications and is also interoperable with the Apple U1 chip (Beta Evaluation).
Mouser also offers the DWM3001CDK development kit, which enables designers to evaluate hardware performance as a TWR or TDoA tag and to build an evaluation real-time location system (RTLS). An on-board J-Link debugger provides SWD and UART interfaces to the DWM3001C.
